Ever hear of the Bechdel test?

[quote]The Bechdel test (/ˈbɛkdəl/ BEK-dəl), also known as the Bechdel–Wallace test, is a measure of the representation of women in fiction. It asks whether a work features at least two women who talk to each other about something other than a man. The requirement that the two women must be named is sometimes added.[/quote]

And Jacques Rivette's Celine and Julie Go Boating [u][i]pass[/i][/u] this test, woot!!!

Any other examples you can think of where 2 women talk about things other than a man?

"Frasier" was apparently one show where female characters conversed about things other than men. Daphne and Roz talk. I can't remember any examples, but I'd say I buy it.
